About Our Chosen Charity
The weekend is not just about celebrating our anniversary but also about raising money for a cause that is very close to our hearts – the Wallace & Gromit Children’s Charity.
The Wallace and Gromit Children’s Charity is a charity set up to help sick children in hospitals and hospices within the UK. This charity has been chosen as it is very close to Steve’s heart. One of his childhood friends, Hannah, had her baby boy two weeks before the birth of his son Freddy.
Both couples shared the journey of pregnancy but at 20 weeks Hannah & Adi were given some awful news. Their son had a hole in his heart along with his main vein and artery the wrong way around. After a safe delivery, baby Oscar was taken in for open heart surgery two days later. The surgery was hugely successful but each day was tough on his recovery.
Three months on little Oscar is doing really well and he is really thriving! Both Hannah & Adi have said how the foundation was their rock through such a tough time, offering great support and information to help them understand their situation.
Throughout the weekend, we will be waiving our treatment costs and instead encourage people to donate to the Wallace and Gromit Children’s Charity.
If you would like to book any of our free taster sessions or would like to run the Relay Marathon with Active Health Clinics, call us on 01628 626 565 or email us today.
